    Best way to protect vision?

    What is the best way to protect my vision? I'm asking because I lost the use of my right eye five years ago and I want to make sure nothing happens to my left eye.

    Lutein is the best supplement to take for eye health...wearing dark glasses so that you do not strain your eyes- taking care of avoid blue light from computers or readers (you can wear clear blue light protecting glasses in the house) and talk to your eye doctor...

    Was your loss of vision from an infection? A disease? Or is it genetic or degenerative? Your ophthalmologist would be best able to direct you to prevention.

    Great advice from MSNIK. I would suggest meeting with your opthalmologist as he/she will have the best options or plan to protect your remaining vision. And of course, get in as soon as possible should you notice anything new or changed with your vision. Time is of the essence in many cases.

    It was from third nerve palsy. I can't open my eye and it drifts out.

    To preserve your eyes, you must concentrate on their health, which involves correct nutrition and mineral intake. You should also see a professional to determine the state of your eyes. Additionally, try to avoid exposing your eyes to direct sunlight and wear sunglasses whenever possible. It is essential to keep the eyes moist at all times. If you're suffering dryness or burning, open and close your eyelids. Ask your ophthalmologist about artificial tears to moisten your eyes on a frequent basis if this isn't adequate.
